Welcome to the Bert Show.
Thanks for checking us out.
Let’s start with 100% honesty. The station was the ONLY station in the USA that would give me a chance at hosting. That’s no lie. So, I made them sweat it out for 15? Maybe 20 minutes before I accepted their offer and here we are; 17 years later.
If you’re new to our fam than you have to know a few things. Every person on this show suffers from TMI syndrome. There’s probably about 10% of our personal lives that’s totally off limits. It’s kind of reality radio but our number one goal is to make sure you laugh a few times before you have to enter the real world.
I’m proud that the show has heart, also. I have a nonprofit called Bert’s Big Adventure. We take children that have chronic and terminal illnesses down to Disney World for an all expenses paid, five-day trip and we bring everybody in their family! Then we get together a few times each year for reunions to make sure we’re connected. We’ve built a network of 15 years of special needs families!
When I’m not working on the show, I’m probably doing one of three things…
1. Spending time with my boys: I have two amazing boys, Hayden and Hollis, who make me proud everyday. Hollis is the athlete. Hayden loves the arts. My job every day is to make sure they feel loved and safe and make sure are loving, capable gentlemen.
2. Traveling: I want to see the world. I’ve hiked in Venezuela, surfed in Costa Rica, almost drowned in Hawaii, driven beach buggies in Brazil, danced at midnight on a rooftop in Colombia, got caught in a sea storm off Capri, crashed a scooter in Greece, sailed around the Caribbean for Christmas…I actually am the most interesting man in the world, now that I think of it. Not that lame Dos Equis guy.
3. Working out: I love the gym. I love nutrition and body science. Staying fit has always been a big part of my life.
Thanks for giving the Bert Show a shot at your loyalty. We’re real. We’re funny. And I think it’s very different than anything you might have heard on morning radio.
